Our home for the week is The Byre at Higher Clovelly. We found it easily, as you approach from the Bideford direction you can even see the collection of old farm buildings converted in to homes. It is a lovely setting – very close to both Hartland and Clovelly, not far from Bideford and Bude – with a pretty garden and decking and views along the coast. You enter the old farm via gates guarded by lovely stone lions.
We did struggle a bit to find the key safe, and had to phone the owners (who were very nice and understanding) and we were soon inside.
We have a tradition of fish and chips on the first night of a UK holiday – pretty much the only time we ever have fish and chips – so we drove in to Hartland. We watched as the elderly chap over the road went in to the chip shop the minute it opened, accompanied by his cat! The cat sat outside meowing the whole time the fish was cooking, then walked back home with the old man…clearly a daily event for both man and cat to fetch their fish supper. Awwwww!
Another day, another sunrise…
